On the terrace we find a singular, but not unusual construction in Salento, namely stone ‘apiaries’, predecessors of modern hives for breeding bees, and a storage room.Returning to the outside of the house, on the right side of the facade, a small alley opens up, through which it is possible to access a further room belonging to the property.The current state requires renovation, and this home represents an extraordinary investment opportunity.
